possible email problems at switch time

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I will be switching shortly and forsee a problem with transferring my email across.

I use a windows program called the bat (made by ritlabs) and am trying to find out what types of email files mail allows you to import.


I can export as .msg files or .eml files or "unix mailbox" (not sure of the extention)


any thoughts?


Dinger :)

Do you have any chance of getting an IMAP-enabled eMail account? You don't have to switch to an IMAP account entirely (although IMAP is the best way to handle eMail,IMHO) but for transferring eMail from your PC to your Mac it's probably best.


All you would have to do is add the IMAP account in The Bat, move all mail over to that account by dragging and dropping mails there and then, in Apple's Mail (or Thunderbird or whatever programm you'll be using) set up that IMAP account and your mails will be there already.


BTW: Whereabouts in Pembrokeshire exactly?
